About MMM 2020
The chemistry of main-group elements has been thriving during recent years. While much of the research has been focused on unravelling the preparative methods, reactivity and structure of
compounds where the main-group element is in a low-oxidation state or has a low coordination number, there has also been a shift in emphasis in examining the properties of such compounds in applications ranging from photophysical properties to catalysis. This diverse and rich
chemistry has prompted us to organize a meeting dedicated to this theme. Fortuitously, many young researchers working in this theme have joined various Indian Institutes during recent years and have been contributing significantly.
It is appropriate that this second meeting (MMM-2020) is being held at the School of Chemical Sciences, National Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhubaneswar, where Organometallics, Catalysis, and Main group chemistry have had a synergistic influence on the growth of Chemistry in general and inorganic chemistry in particular. Some of the recent exciting developments and future challenges in the field will be highlighted in the three-day symposium through several invited lectures by senior and young faculty drawn from across the world. In addition, there will be a vibrant poster session involving young researchers.
